UK ministers reportedly reject automatic porn blocking plan

http://j.mp/Z8m4ux  (BBC)

   "Ministers have rejected plans to automatically block internet access
    to pornography on all computers, saying the move is not widely
    supported.  A public consultation found 35% of parents wanted an
    automatic bar while 15% wanted some content filtered, and an option to
    block other material.  But the government says internet providers
    should encourage parents to switch on parental controls."

The plan was inane and technically unenforceable censorship in the
first place.
